My training is in Anatomic Pathology, Clinical Pathology and Hematology (Pathology). I have 40 years of experience in Pathology, and have served in Medical Missions, Community Medicine, Military Medicine, and in University settings. In 1997 I retired from the U.S. Navy and joined the Pathology Department at LSU Health Shreveport. I coordinate the Clinical Pathology portion of the Pathology Residency Program with training specifically in hematopathology. My primary service and research interest is in morphologic hematopathology. I participate in the daily sign-out of cases (bone marrow, lymph node, and other tissues with hematopoietic and lymphoreticular disease), which are conducted at a consensus conference with residents, fellows, and staff in Hematopathology and Molecular Pathology. I enjoy the interaction and teaching involved in making diagnoses that are arrived at by integrating routine techniques, immunohistochemistry, cytochemistry, immunophenotyping, cytogenetics, and molecular genetic studies.
